Welcome to Year 5

Maple 2 - Miss Gander and Mrs Hawkins 

Week ending 15th February 2019:

In the first week back, in Maths, we will be looking at written multiplication and division and using this knowledge to find fractions of amounts.  Key vocabulary includes: multiplication, product, division, short division, divisor, fraction, unit, non-unit, numerator and denominator.

In English we will be starting a fiction unit on Myths. Key vocabulary includes: pronouns, relative pronouns, vocabulary choices, theasurus, synonym and antonym.

Homework for the holiday is to read a new book and prepare a presentation which reviews the book. This is due in class by Tuesday 5th March (the second week back). Further details about this is stuck into the homework bokos. The new spellings for Term 4 will be given out at the end of the first week back.

PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday will be an outdoor session so please make sure you bring in appropriate PE kit such as leggings or jogging bottoms so you don't get too cold.

Finally, a heads up for Book Week, which is the second week back after the holiday. On the Thursday, all children are invited to dress up as a favourite book character, so it might be a good time to start thinking about your costume over the holidays!

Have a wonderful holiday,

The Year 5 Team.
